Nordic Safaris

Whitevater Rafting in the Kukkolankoski:

Shooting the rapids is done in a rubberboat, and the customers participate on steering by paddling. The activity starts by going through safety and paddling instructions. Waterproof clothing, rubber boots, safety vests and helmets will be handed out to the participants.

The first shooting is called the ‘basic track’, and it follows the Finnish-Swedish border which is also where the river runs deepest. The second run will be an ‘action track’ if circumstances allow. The first task of the track is to stop the raft on a back current. After that the raft is paddled along a fast track, which runs through the best waves of the river. The tasks are quite challenging. The total duration of the event is approximately an 90 minutes.
